Six Days to USOK

Posted by Paolo Chikiamco On November - 5 - 2009

EDIT: You can find Usok #1 here. Enjoy!

A lot can happen in six days—just take a look at Genesis (no, the rest day doesn’t count… as they say in Labor Law, ‘no work, no pay’).

Genesis is a particularly apt example, given what is set to take place  six days from now, on Wednesday, November 11, 2009 (at 11:00 a.m. Manila Time).  While I may not quite be able to mold life from clay (or women from pieces of calcium, much to my chagrin), in six days I will be able to present you with the very first issue of USOK, Rocket Kapre’s new quarterly webzine dedicated to bringing you a regular dose of quality short form Speculative Fiction.


In case you need help remembering that, let me break it down into simple numbers:

Six days from now…

Five short stories…

Two Quality Reprints…

Three All-New Tales…

Zero cost…

One Date, November 11…

Four letters: U S O K

See you then everyone!
